Described by Servalan as a "pestilential rathole", Freedom City was situated on a planet not far from the Federation's borders. It was famous for its gambling opportunities including the Big Wheel, and Avon said that "Space City pales by comparison". The planet had a breathable atmosphere, and was home to a species of reptile from the distilled venom of which pataki cakes were made. Chenie referred to Freedom City being run by Krantor. Blake went there in search of Docholli, as did Servalan and, independently, Travis.
